What is my prized possession in my house? (in Contests)

QBRanger June 6 2007 5:25 PM EDT

Prize is 1M, yes that is 1 followed by 6 (six) zeros.


One guess per contestant per 24 hours. That means if you guess at 5pm one day, no next guess till 5pm the next day. Failure to follow this means a DQ.

One can "buy" hints for 25k each, hints should be yes/no format. If you buy a guess, you get an extra guess. The 25k goes to the pot.

All other rules are for me to decide.

When someone gets the answer, I will explain why it is so prized by me.

Have fun.

PS, Th00p gets 1 free guess due to the fact this is a variation on his contest.

One other point, Hints are to be posted in this thread. If someone spends 25k on a hint, then they get 20 min from the time I post the answer to take a guess. Others can post their guesses but if the hint buyer posts his within that 20 min, his gets priority.

Would it perhaps be the Andy Bergholtz sculpted resin bust of Bruce Campbell as Ash, chainsaw held high and boomstick on his back, that was released as a limited edition of 7,500 copies back in 2003?

QBRanger June 7 2007 11:11 PM EDT

No, but I would like to see that. I am a huge Evil Dead fan.

As much as I love my TiVO, which I cannot watch TV without, it hold no special place in my heart.

Great guess though.

Let me clarify replaceable.

The object itself can be replaced. The reason behind it being prized, of course, cannot if it is lost or stolen.

Hope that helps.

My very very very bad,

YES, But what cartoon. RD wins 1M CB2.

The rest of the pot goes to whoever figures which cartoon character.

One can make a guess for the cartoon character for the 400k in hint fees.

One can also make a guess as to the Why for 500k bonus.

One can make 1 guess on each, then wait till 10 others guess.

these hints were taken AFTER RD guessed right so here is the refund. Their free guesses will still be in play.

QBRanger June 8 2007 11:08 AM EDT

Also, as to the reason why-you need to be specific like "you wife gave it to you when you graduated residency" or something more along those lines.

Gandalf June 8 2007 11:36 AM EDT

Mickey Mouse

Because you're mother gave it to you as a present.

Because it was... one of your kid's first present to you?

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] June 8 2007 1:23 PM EDT

''Because it was one or the only item left intact after a very damaging fire.''

Sorry, that's grim, it happened near me though, that's why it came to mind :P

Slashundhack [We Forge Our Own Stuff] June 8 2007 1:57 PM EDT

This seems too obvious but a Homer Simpson phone . Because it looks just like you dad ! he he !

QBRanger June 8 2007 2:07 PM EDT

not mickey, goofy or homer.
It was not the only possession left after a house fire

Tezmac June 8 2007 2:16 PM EDT

Bugs Bunny, because he says "What's up Doc" and you happen to be a "Doc"?

Humm...good guess there Tezmac, right or not.

QBRanger June 8 2007 2:22 PM EDT

Not bugs, however I do love that phone for the reasons you stated.

Reignmaker [Battle Royale] June 8 2007 2:22 PM EDT

Eric Cartman? Cause the phone was given to you by the creators of South Park who you met?

Reignmaker [Battle Royale] June 8 2007 2:23 PM EDT

Oh, and Miandrital, I already guessed a singing bass.

QBRanger June 8 2007 2:25 PM EDT

Taz is the master of destruction but not the reason I hold the phone as my prized possession.

I did not have a "crush" till high school. At least one I can remember.

Slashundhack [We Forge Our Own Stuff] June 9 2007 12:35 PM EDT

I do not normally post CMs but novice did get it right.

It was the last gift from my mom to be before she died last year from lung cancer.
